Hi all,

We (OLPC folks, me) are still trying to find a spot to host the build  
machine for this
so that we can do continuous or daily automated builds for testing.

I know it's jumping ahead a bit, but is this (for xo1 or 1.5) going to  
be updatable with yum?
Leaving aside the utility of yum updates for XO in general ... for  
testing these
builds it will be much more possible for testers to pull some updated  
every day or week than pull 300MiB images and overwrite our device  
every day/week. Especially for the wonderful people in distant lands  
with slow and
unreliable lines.

If this was already FAQ'd I do apologise.
